Griffin Animal Hospital
Dr Griffin is the best vet I could dream of. She's friendly, compassionate, and funny - and she will tell you how it is. I love not worrying that I'm being charged too much or feeling like she's trying to sell me something. You can tell she genuinely cares about your pet and that she wants what's best for them, and is always willing to elaborate until you feel comfortable. I've even had her give me her personal cell phone number when I was worried about something in particular. Plus, the sweet receptionist Julie always calls to check how your pet is feeling the next day. I bring both my dog and cat here and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else ever again. I always leave smiling and cannot recommend her enough.

Dr. Vebrick is a consummate knowledgeable professional in the care of our fur babies. What matters most is that she will give you her honest unvarnished professional opinion as to treatment which we appreciate. She clearly stated alternative treatments for our cat's condition and the pros and cons of each and encourages us to research on net to enhance our level of knowledge for making a good decision. She does have the best interest of the cats at heart and only ordered procedures that were clearly necessary. I have preferred cat exclusive Vets for more than 20 years as they focus on felines uniquely. She is warm and caring if you are patient and willing to get to know her.

Spring Valley Animal Hospital
We love Spring Valley Animal Hospital! After I purchased an 8-week old Great Pyrenees, I knew how important it would be to find a great Veterinarian. It was equally important to find a hospital that our puppy Leena could grow with through vet care, boarding, and grooming all in the same place! We definitely found that at Spring Valley Animal Hospital. The Receptionist couldn't have been any more helpful and pleasant - the Dr and Tech were wonderful and patient with her, and answered all of my questions and addressed concerns - the Groomer was also top notch. Leena came out looking like a million bucks and smelled fantastic, without breaking the bank :)

Midlands Veterinary Practice
I have been taking my pets to these vets for 30 years. I wouldn't take them anywhere else. My daughter and son take their pets here. My ex-husband takes his pets here. Most important in choosing a vet is competence. These vets are both highly competent. They keep up with the latest developments in veterinary medicine. Dr. Robinson has been practicing veterinary medicine for more than 40 years. He is caring (of both pets & people) and takes time to talk to owners so he can be sure they understand what they need to. Dr. Robinson has been recognized with accolades by his peer groups and by other groups concerned with professional men and women.

Midlands Veterinary Practice
My wife and I have been using Midlands Vet for about nine years now. They have always been clean, friendly, professional, and very caring towards our dogs. We have always had bigger breeds, Rottweiler, but they have never shied away from our dogs, or insisted on using a muzzle. Some other Vet practices in the area have insisted on muzzles before the dog even comes in the door! Dr. Robinson and Dr. Cabe have always taken the time to fully explain and answer all questions patiently and in a way that you can understand. The staff is great too! always friendly and caring towards the dogs. I feel they charge fair prices for the quality of work performed.

Humane Spca
The Humane Society is the same address as Columbia Animal Services but the Humane Society is the first building on the left as soon as you enter the parking lot. I'm not sure if there was some confusion about that based on all of the negative reviews. I got my cat neutered here today and he did wonderfully and is back home resting safe and sound. All of the staff members were courteous, and treated me with respect. With the extra pain medication, it came to $31 to have my cat fixed.

Took my three year old Jack Russell for a neutering. The clerk at check in wasn't pleasant, but she had a monumental job to do with a crowd waiting in line. Very efficient, but no smiles, but that's ok when you consider her work load. As I was one of the first in line, I was able to pick up my buddy early, 12:00. They did a great job and zero problems. They took good care of my friend and I would recommend them to anyone. Everyone was friendly on pick up. Thanks

Dr. Verbrick does all the cat work for our extended family. I tried taking my cat to the regular vet, who did not get the results as quickly. Her fees are reasonable and she is an expert on all cat problems. Great staff. I also board my cat there and he seems comfortable with the staff during his stay.

Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
